Default drive sprocket

First bike is close to initial run.One thing I've noticed is when I roll the bike around my shop(chain on,clutch in)the chain is fighting the motor sprocket.
The sprocket seems to be a very tight fit to the chain and when the chain is feeding onto the sprocket you can see the links slightly raise up before they drop unto the teeth.Somewhat noisy too.I noticed when I first installed the chain it would actually get stuck on the sprocket and I would have to knock it off.Is this normal for a new chain and sprocket before braking in or should I work on the sprocket a little? Thanks,Ron
